Introduction of Automatic Teacher Promotion by TSC
Introduction of Automatic Teacher Promotion by TSC. In the outcry of teachers for staying in the same Job Grade of a lengthy of years. Teacher Service Commission (TSC) is of suggestion to introduce an automatic teacher advancement in terms of promotion to subsequent Job Grade after the stipulated time (years). This is likely to encourage the teaching fraternity and to foster and expand their passion in the career.
Teachers play a significant role in defining a nation’s future through developing the young minds of the country.
The commission has resolved to send more teachers to teach at junior secondary schools in order to address the teacher shortage.
Across the country, a number of complaints about the standards used to choose instructors for junior secondary schools are receiving varying reactions.
The Kenya Women Teachers Association has challenged TSC to assess the procedure for promoting teachers.
One solution to this problem would be to use automatic teacher promotions as an incentive for excellent teaching.
To implement automatic teacher promotion, a system that evaluates teachers on the basis of their years of experience and classroom performance would be required.
With this approach, teachers will be commended for their dedication and effort toward their jobs, and the protracted promotion process—which can be tiresome, unfair, and discriminatory—will be eliminated.
They will be given tangible rewards by teachers who have a clear path to promotion for their perseverance and hard work.
This move however fears opposition since some educationist from Career Progression Guidelines Committee can deny it. Terming it that many teachers will not put more effort as before. Since many work hard for the promotion and tend to take promotion components such TPADs and other Curriculum seriously.
Therefore, the automatic teacher promotion as suggested is still a matter of discussion but it is highly recommended by teachers to curb the teacher stagnation in the same Job grade.
